Curry! Good for the cold!

I’ve been under the weather the entire week. Thanks to my good friend- he suggested eating curry, as it’s a type of spice and is good for our health. It boosts our immune system (see article link below).

…So I did!

Today, I will review two different Japanese curries I had at two different restaurants.


Tonkatsu (aka pork cutlet) curry set from Menchanko Tei. This is part of their lunch special. It comes with toss salad. Very filling and VERY delicious!!


Curry rice dish from Goma Tei at Pearlridge. It was very spicy; I liked it! Yum!

Both curries were very delicious! I love Japanese curry in general. I’ve never tasted any curry dish that wasn’t good.

Here are some links I found about the curry spice and spices in general. They’re very good for us! We should have more spices cooked in our meals.

Happy weekend!



Sunday Funday brunch lunch!

Happy Sunday! Last week, my boyfriend and I enjoyed lunch at the famous Boots & Kimo’s in Kailua. It’s a breakfast/brunch/lunch place that closes by 3pm every day, except Tuesday.

Tons of Japanese tourists line up outside to eat there. They are known for their macadamia nut pancakes. Yummy!

We shared the banana mac nut pancakes, which was awesomely delicious. Banana pancakes are my ultimate favorite! We did not need to pour syrup over the hotcakes. The sauce was enough! I ordered Grandma’s own hamburger steak recipe breakfast with eggs (over-easy) and rice. Oh, it was so good! I always enjoy trying different “homemade” hamburger steaks. The taste is so satisfying! Makes me want to make some in my kitchen. Can’t beat homemade hamburger!


Have a wonderful new week!
